    ★★★½

    We watched this film in my English class during end-of-year testing since we already read the book earlier this year and I thought this film was a huge step up from the book. Now, to be fair, I didn’t like the book so it wasn't too difficult for the movie to top it, however, what I really appreciated here was that the movie improved upon what I thought to be the book's biggest issue.

While the movie provides a compelling mystery that pays attention to the details, it also leans into comedy way too often. The movie has the dark tone that…
